"I absolutely adore Brisa's classes. She is a ball of positive energy and she brings absolute joy to whatever room she is in. I have never left her class without a smile on my face and a sense of my own power and confidence. Her style of teaching is all about giving her students the confidence to find strength in their existing abilities. Her classes are hard - don't get me wrong. I am constantly challenged and always leave at least a little bit sore. But she offers options and variations to all poses, making special note of anyone who might be pregnant.
Since the first time I came to Brisa's class, I haven't stopped coming. I know that anyone who experiences her particular brand of challenging yoga, exuberance, and welcoming will feel the same." Margot S. (Master in Public Health)
Brisa brings 12 years and over 3,500 hours of teaching experience into her classes. Brisa is a certified Forrest Yoga, Prenatal Yoga, Early Postnatal Yoga, and Bikram Yoga teacher. She is also a Barre3 certified instructor and a Vision & Goals coach (Lightyear Leadership Certified Coach)
Brisa likes to refer to her group classes as "Yoga Togetherness". Her classes are known to be breath-focused and invigorating, while an energy-shifting and heartfelt practice. Her blend of compassionate teaching style, exuberance, down-to-earth approach, and commitment to realness, creates an accepting and nurturing space for her students to authentically connect with their own bodies and spirit on a deeper level.
Brisa is deeply invested in her students and she understands that each student is a unique human being. She enhances each student's practice by providing alternative poses during her classes. This allows her students to connect to their own physical and emotional needs.
Brisa is passionate about coaching yoga with a therapeutic approach. She has partnered with Duke University Hospital and is currently involved in a study to help cancer patients and survivors through yoga. Brisa is also faculty at the 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training Program at Yoga Off East studio.
In April 2020, during the world's quarantine, Brisa founded Yoga for a Cause Movement.
Its mission is raising awareness and money through donation-based yoga classes.
Yoga for a Cause sends 100% of the proceeds to an organization that creates a positive impact in the world by supporting socially affected communities.
Brisa combines her love for yoga, travel, and adventure through her international yoga retreats.
